    You can get extra lean mince I think that does come within the rules, or try quorn mince, it's very low in fat. I use a combination of calories and fat, I don't obsess about either but keep an eye on both as you really need to to lose weight. You can have a fat free diet but if you are eating too many calories you will still put on weight.

    Have you thought about trying quorn mince instead? That's within the Xenical rules, and is quite tasty, especially when you're using a sauce.
    Other than that, you could try to get some extra-lean mince from the supermarket. I think you can find some that are just within the 5g/100g rule, or not far outside it anyway :)

    I count both calories and fat content to be honest, but I know some people do just count fat content alone.
    I find that keeping an eye on the calories stops me from snacking on sugary things that are not necessarily high in fat, but might slow down my weight loss.

    If you have a look at myfitnesspal.com you can enter all your details there, and it'll tell you how many calories you need to keep to in order to lose weight.
    I aim for roughly 1500 but it all depends on your height, weight, exercise level, and how much weight you want to lose each week :)

    Good luck, and welcome to Minis. If you've got any other questions, just ask! :D

    mmm spag bol. I'm missing red meat now but I can't be controlled with it so I'm going cold turkey (luckily thats a white meat :8855: ) for a while.
    I might give quorn ago, I've had the sausages before and I really enjoyed them :)

    Meat isn't too bad at all if you choose lean cuts and trim off all visible fat. Steak and salad is one of my favourites or pork steak with veg.
